Branham Law, LLP announces an investigation has been launched and a lawsuit filed on behalf of shareholders of Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI) for alleged violations of securities and shareholder protection laws.

If you purchased shares of Bridgepoint prior to May 3, 2011 or have relevant information regarding this suit, you are urged to contact attorney Trey Branham at or toll free at (855) 722-5910.

“It appears that Bridgepoint may have been concealing accreditation problems with its Ashford campus,” said attorney Trey Branham. “If that turns out to be the case, then the company’s stock was improperly valued. We are seeking to put the appropriate controls in place to ensure this type of information is disclosed and correct any improper behavior. These solutions should improve the company’s value.”
